Parmesan Chicken Dinner

If your looking for a quick, easy dinner that your family will love this is a great one to try. Grill enough Chicken Breasts for your family and cut it into strips. Steam your favorite Veggie and add some Rice (brown rice adds a nice flavor to the dish) and top with Homemade Parmesan Cream Sauce.

To Make Homemade Parmesan Cream Sauce.
Whisk together 3/4 cup flour with 1 cup milk. Add. pinch of nutmeg, 1/4 tsp onion powder, salt & pepper (to your desired taste). When well blended with no lumps add 2 more cups milk and cook over MEDIUM heat, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and quickly stir in 2 TBSP butter and 1 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese.

This is one of my favorites sauces and so easy to make. It is great on so many things. Another great more "grown up" recipe with a similar sauce is Brown Butter Gnocchi with Mushrooms in Parmesan Sauce you can find HERE at Kraft foods (the sauce is slightly blander and in my opinion not as good) but it is great with the Gnocchi and Mushrooms.

Clorox Wipes "To Go"

Maybe I am just germ-aphobic but I love Clorox's Disinfectant Wipes in the "To Go" pack. These are an absolute must have for me. The little pack fits conveniently in your purse or diaper bag and is always there to conquer those "not so clean" surfaces when you are out and about. My personal favorite uses are shopping cart handles, and restaurant booster seats and high chairs. They are especially great on restaurant tables so that you don't have to cringe when your child drops food off his plate on the table then eats it.
